Story time resumes

Recommended Stories For You

at the library

Weekly story times are scheduled to resume beginning at 10 and 11:30 a.m. today at the Craig branch of the Moffat County Libraries, 570 Green St. today’s theme is Orville Wright’s birthday. Other story time dates and themes are as follows:

10 and 11:30 a.m. Aug. 28: Back to school. Summer’s over, which means no more vacation. But, we all had lots of fun. We are happy and excited because at last, the school year has begun. Going to school can sometimes be a little scary, but read along with us about Momma Raccoon’s secret that she shares with Chester to make going to school not so bad at all.

10 and 11:30 a.m. Sept. 4: Trains and trucks. Either by truck or train, story time will be moving today. Come join Miss Christy for a chuggin’ and rollin’ good time as she reads stories all about trains and trucks.

Because of the distractions that late entrance into the children’s room causes, the library asks that you arrive 10 minutes before scheduled story times. This will allow enough time for both story time sessions to begin as scheduled, as well as allow you the opportunity to visit with other patrons, look for books and get settled.

Yampa Valley Chorus seeks new members

The Yampa Valley Chorus, a member of the Rocky Mountain Region 8 of Sweet Adelines International, is seeking new members, as well as a skilled musician to be the group’s new director.

The chorus, which has a 25-year history in the Yampa Valley, sings four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop style. It is an achievement-oriented chorus, consistently scoring at the “B” level and becoming Small Chorus Champions among Sweet Adelines choruses in the region that includes Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota. Music education, vocal production and performance skills, for both individual and ensemble singing, are a major focus of the chorus, which combines learning a cappella four-part harmony, performances and annual competition to create a musical hobby that is both challenging and rewarding for women of all ages.

Rehearsals are from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursdays at Sunset Elementary School Music Room.

For more information, call Meghan Rudd at 824-0396.
